** Speaking of Jason, this was averted with him himself--he is the result of his father Alan's extramarital affair with his mother. However, when his mother was murdered, his father's wife not only accepted that it was necessary that they take the child him, she grew to love him as if he were her own, even eventually adopting him.
** Played straight with Jason's brother AJ, who for years was believed to be the result of his ''mother's'' extramarital affair. As such, her husband Alan resented the child and shunned him. By the time it was discovered that AJ was Alan's child after all, crucial bonding time had been lost and the two were never able to repair their damaged relationship.
* Just a standard SoapOpera trope all around. Even if a couple can reconcile after infidelity, the resulting child always serves as a painful reminder.

* The source of [[Literature/WutheringHeights Heathcliff]]'s dislike for Catherine (II) is that she's the living proof that Catherine married someone else. Being his beloved Cathy's daughter doesn't spare her from his wrath, since she is most of all ''Edgar's'' daughter and takes strongly after him. Also, [[MaternalDeathBlameTheChild Cathy died by giving birth to said daughter]].

* ''Songs and Swords'' ForgottenRealms novels: Elaith Craulnober and Arilyn "Moonblade" < Amnestria Moonflower + Bran Skorlskun. "[[WrongNameOutburst Amnestria!]]" was Elaith's first word when he saw Arilyn. Unusual in that later [[spoiler:he mostly got over it, but now ''she'' sometimes overreacts on his past attitude and clashing with her half-elven ideals]].
** Keturah's daughter and [[spoiler:Basel Indoulur]] in ''CounselorsAndKings''. Mostly in a benign "would-be child" way, but this still motivated more activity than is normal for him and even an uncharacteristic murderous rage when he discovered that she's in danger.

* From ''ASongOfIceAndFire'': in the first book, preteen Sansa Stark meets Petyr Baelish, the UnluckyChildhoodFriend of Sansa's mother Catelyn...whom Sansa ''greatly'' resembles. He creeps her out in their initial meeting by pointing this out and touching her hair, and things only get squickier from there. The [[ReplacementGoldfish creepiness of the relationship]] isn't helped by the fact that she goes into hiding [[WifeHusbandry posing as his daughter and learning politics at his side.]]

* Interesting aversion in ''Manga/MedakaBox'': [[spoiler: Fukuro Tsurubami could not keep up with his sister Hato, and had her marry his best friend Kajiki Kurokami in order for this trope to take affect and for him to meet Medaka, the daughter who reminded him of his sister.]]

Griffith already knows that he's going to hate the kid, as it's the ultimate proof of [[spoiler: Guts and Casca's relationship and will be the one thing that they will love more than him, which in Griffith's eyes is [[EtTuBrute a mark of betrayal]] ([[{{Yandere}} especially in the case of Guts]]).]] Despite this, [[GiveTheBabyAFather Griffith agrees to be the child's surrogate father when it's born.]]

* An inversion from [[BigBad Vlad Masters]], to the eponymous ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom.'' Vlad actually ''likes'' Danny (in a twisted, AffablyEvil way). His big dream is basically to steal Maddie back from Jack and make Danny (and Jazz, to a lesser extent) his own adopted children, something which ''they,'' as you can imagine, find rather unsettling.

** A few years later, when Abby meets ex-lover Carter's fiancee Kem and immediately sees that she's pregnant. After the couple walks off, she snidely queries, "What did he do, knock her up the minute he got there?", stunned to realize that Carter got over her quite quickly, despite the fact that the two of them had been discussing ''marriage'' shortly before they broke up.
